Last Thursday, The Abstract Team got a chance to be a part of the audience to watch the showcase called ‘Release’ put on by the performing arts company, QUILT at the Phillip Sherlock Centre for the Creative Arts (UWI, Jamaica).
The aim of the show was to raise funds as they were selected to represent Jamaica in Manchester, England at “Contacting the World”, an international theatre exchange project for young people involving young companies from around the globe this summer. They were one of six fortunate companies to be invited.
The show was all about the application of SOUND. LIGHT. WORDS. PASSION. and ART. to “Release” their creative energies.
Rayon, McLean, Artistic Director of the company says
I don’t believe in thinking outside the box; I never created one in the first place, so I don’t need to find my way out
and this was very distinct in the entire show.
The group raised the bar for performing companies around the world as they entertained a small audience on the university campus.. The show featured 7 pieces, ranging from singing to dancing to acting; some even incorporating all three.
We speak for all in attendance when we say that the show was well put together and they deserve all the success that comes their way. Immaculate production and many talented people!
Sponsorship was provided by local Production Company, Factory75
